    Call for Roundtables

    At this year’s TTC 2021 we will be introducing the concept of roundtable discussions. We want roundtables to be an open discussion of varied topics in where information can be shared, become a teaching place or anything that will keep the attendees engaged for the thirty (30) minute duration. The goal is to keep things interesting, fun, or thought provoking. Topics can pertain to the Television and Cinema Engineering realm or anything that you feel would be of interest to our audience. We have a roundtable in place with a working title “Lithium-ion batteries, electric vehicles, autonomous driving’.

    To become a host or moderator of a roundtable please submit a topic and brief description. If interested, please submit your idea to smptepapers@gmail.com. If you could be so kind to add ‘Roundtable’ to the subject line. That will send your request to myself and Ilya Doronin, who are co-organizers to the roundtables portion of the TTC 2021 conference. Each submission will be reviewed and vetted. There are limited spaces available.

    Roundtables will be scheduled in two blocks (morning and afternoon) throughout the three-day event. All participants hosting or moderating a roundtable will be awarded an all-access pass to the TTC 2021 conference.

    Call for Presentations

    The Toronto Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers is once again proud to be holding its widely popular biennial Toronto Technical Conference (TTC) on June 15-17, 2021. This year the conference will be virtual. The theme will be Media Fast Forward’. With the rapid and wide-ranging changes taking place in our media industries, the theme for this year’s conference focuses simply on the changing workflows in Media; from how we work it to how it is consumed and experienced.
    We would like to invite you to be a presenter at our event and deliver a presentation on a topic you feel is relevant to our theme of Media Fast Forward.
